At The John Cooper School, students who are interested in dance instruction have a variety of options to choose from and will learn discipline, flexibility, technique, poise and grace through the study of dance. Middle School dance students are introduced to a variety of styles, from traditional dance to jazz to lyrical to hip hop and perform at halftimes of football games. In Upper School, dance is offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels, based on level of experience. Instruction in the unique art of aerial arts, also known as “silks,” is also offered at all three levels for Middle and Upper School students. Middle and Upper School dance students showcase their talents at the school-wide Fine Arts Festival Week held each April and in the end-of-year “Life!” production that is held each May.
